Trusty Chambray

It has been a big week around here – we reached 80-degree temperatures!
If you live in the Midwest, then you know what a big deal this is.

dress: Old Navy (exact & on major sale!) | espadrilles: Gap Outlet, old (similar & similar) | hat: H&M (exact) | wishbone necklace: c/o The Shopping Bag (exact & similar) | long necklace: Origami Owl, gift 

being said, I found no better way to celebrate than breaking out this
chambray shirt dress that I bought back in February and have been
waiting to wear ever since. This dress quickly is climbing to the top
spot as my favorite piece in my closet – it’s easy, casual and
ridiculously comfortable.  For being a shirt dress, I was pleasantly
surprised that it still has some shape to it and doesn’t appear baggy. I
also am happy that I easily can switch the tie sash from the front,
where it’s intended to be, to the back for a slightly different look.
And, even though I’m not the biggest fan of anything sleeveless – I’m
pretty self-conscious about my arms – I find that the thicker sleeves
and cut on this dress are a tad more forgiving than most.
Let’s face it – most anything chambray is the ultimate wardrobe staple.

    Omg, I love this dress! I've been dying for a cute Panama style hat, too!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has this dress – I seriously think I'm going to live in it all summer long.

    Thanks, mom!

    Thanks, lady! Like I said, it's definitely meant to be tied in the front, but I'm not the biggest fan of that look (on me), so I'm glad it still looks normal with it tied in the back.

    Thanks, Jana!

    Thank you!

    I'm sure you'll love 'em!

    Thanks, sweet friend! I love hats, but I don't wear them nearly enough. I'm still trying to figure out exactly the perfect way to wear this one. 🙂

    Yes, they are SO comfortable! I basically live in espadrilles throughout the spring/summer when I'm not in sandals. I wouldn't recommend them for long walks or anything, but for running errands and just doing things around town they are great.

    Awe, thanks girl!

    Gotta love this weather – I think it puts everybody in a better mood!

    You are too sweet, thank you – I don't think I've accepted yet that I'm no longer 19 and have the stick thin arms of a teenager. 🙂

    Thanks, Anne! I'm all about keeping it polished and casual these days.

    Thanks so much!

    Oh my goodness, it is?! I hope they get it back in because it seriously is the best chambray dress.

    Thanks, Jenn!

    I figured why not go all out?! Plus, I haven't gotten a pedicure yet, so I'm still trying to hide my feet before I brave sandal season!

    Thanks, lady!

    This dress looks so perfect on you! I really want to find comfortable pair of sneaker type flats for the summer, my tennis shoes are looking pretty rough after one too many summer concerts haha. I was thinking of Keds but those ones are super cute, are they comfy?
